Yes, KLF Coconad coconut oil is 100% pure filtered oil
KLF Coconad Coconut Oil is extracted by using modern expellers; the coconut oil is expelled from dried coconut (Copra), using Vacuumised Steam Injection Cooking (VSIC) Technology, a KLF Nirmal patented technology.
Filtering is done with the help of pressure filters and centrifugal filters. The oil passes through a four-stage filtration process to ensure that the end product is crystal clear.
No. KLF Coconad is 100% pure filtered oil and there is no RBD (Refining/Bleaching/Deodorizing) process involved.
Use KLF Coconad coconut oil instead of other oils in your daily cooking.
Simply replace the same amount the recipe calls for with Coconut oil. Coconut oil makes for a healthy alternative to other vegetable oils and shortening (butter etc.), which can contain Trans fats.
No. Coconut oil does not require refrigeration unless you want it to be solid all the time
The benefits of coconut oil are mainly from the nutrient value of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs). The best comparison in nature as to the percentage of MCFAs being consumed in a diet is human breast milk. To equal the amount of MCFAs a nursing infant would receive in one day, an adult would need to consume about 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil a day according to researchers. Since coconut oil naturally is packaged inside the coconut meat, it is recommended to consume this amount throughout the day with food high in fibre and proteins. However, for those not used to coconut oil in their diet, it is best to start with an amount far less than this first, to see how your body reacts.
Coconut oil is a food, not a medication, and therefore it does not have any side effects. Since individuals vary, there could be adverse reactions, especially if your body is used to a low-fat diet regimen. The most common reaction is diarrhoea. While 3.5 Tbsp. is recommended as the daily intake by some researchers, it is probably best not to start with that amount, or eat it all at once. Spread it out over the course of the day, and reduce the amount you ingest if there are unwanted effects. Like any food, some people could possibly have allergic reactions to coconut oil as well, although it does NOT contain any appreciable amounts of protein as the meat of the coconut would, and most food allergies are related to proteins. Traditionally coconut oil has nourished millions, of people throughout Asia for thousands of years.
Since coconut oil is a food and is a staple for many living in Asia, it is considered safe for anyone. In coconut producing countries it is considered normal and a good food for pregnant and lactating women, since it contains Laurics which is also present in breast milk. However, the caution of reactions as stated above should be noted. Many in Western countries are used to a low-fat diet, and it is best NOT to begin experimenting with coconut oil while pregnant if your body is not used to it. If, however, you have been consuming coconut oil regularly without any adverse reactions, there is no reason to discontinue while pregnant, and many good reasons to continue consuming it.
Yes. Coconut oil is healthy because it predominantly comprises MCFAs (Medium Chain Fatty Acids) or MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides), which are readily metabolised in the body and converted to energy instantaneously and consequently helps in reducing body weight.
No. In oil trading, seed oils are considered to be those from annual crops. Common and predominant ones used in North America are Soybean, Corn, Canola, Safflower, Sesame seed and Sunflower seed oil.
Most edible oils tend to solidify when the temperatures go down below a certain level. This temperature is not the same for all the edible oils. For e.g. If one stores Olive oil inside a refrigerator it will solidify, and corn oil will not.
For Coconut Oil, the stated temperature at which it solidifies, or melts is 24 Degree C (76 Degree F). But this can vary by a few degrees on either side, as Coconut Oil is made of 10 medium chain fatty acids, each which has a different melting point. When the temperature swings to extremes during the day and night, Coconut oil tends to solidify and melt, causing crystallization or fractionization. Some of the fatty acids may become solid or start to crystallize at 26 Degree C, while some at 22 Degree C. If the change in temperature is rapid the melting point appears to be more precise. But, if the change in temperature is slow, you will witness the oil with both liquid and solid components. Different fatty acids combine to become lumps and form as crystals. When in a crystal format, these will melt away at 46 Degree C or above.
Another important factor is that Coconad oil has very low moisture content as almost all the moisture is removed during production, to preserve the goodness of oil. Therefore, with low or no moisture in the Oil, Coconad is prone to solidify more.
These crystals or sediments that you may witness depending on your climatic conditions, are nothing but pure coconut oil. Importantly, these sediments are not harmful and will melt if you merely heat them beyond 46 Degree C.
Rest assured that your Coconad Oil is only pure Coconut oil.
